Initial target is to replace 20% of the 7,050,000 two stroke scooters in Taiwan with Alane fuel power.

The project’s value proposition revolves around reducing emissions and extending the range of e-scooters, addressing a significant market demand.


FuelX has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Asia Pacific FC Technology (APFCT) for Alane cartridge development. Preliminary design has been successfully completed, laying the groundwork for further development.

  1. MOU with Asia Pacific FC Technology to develop Alane cartridge
  2. Preliminary design complete
  3. Engineering discussions underway

APFCT have developed ISO 7866 conforming storage canisters for fuel cell powered scooters as a safe and reliable solution. They have completed the operational planning for storage infrastructure.

This was demonstrated under real-life conditions in Kenting, southern Taiwan from 2012 to 2013. During the demonstration APFCT created a distribution network of canister exchange centers at local gasoline stations, convenience stores and the police station.

Case Study: Taiwan

Replacing 20% of the 7,050,000 two-stroke scooters in Taiwan with clean electric power would yield numerous benefits for the environment, public health, and overall quality of life.

1 – Significantly reduce harmful emissions, particularly particulate matter and greenhouse gases, thereby improving air quality and mitigating the negative effects of pollution on public health.

2 – Transitioning to electric power will contribute to noise reduction, creating quieter and more peaceful urban environments.

3 – Decrease dependence on fossil fuels, promoting energy security and resilience while aligning with global efforts to combat climate change.

  • Reduced air pollution, improving public health and quality of life
  • Quieter urban environments, leading to enhanced comfort and well-being
  • Electric scooters typically have lower fuel costs per mile or kilometer

This transition could serve as a catalyst for innovation and investment in clean energy technologies, fostering economic growth and job creation in the renewable energy sector.

Across Asia and India there is an opportunity to decrease 3 billion tons of carbon emitted from scooters per year.

Elevated particulate matter levels can be a consequence of ‘asymmetric pollution’ from two-stroke scooters.
